Stroke during pregnancy ?

Hello,

My friend is 9 weeks pregnant and was taken to hospital last night because she might have suffered a light stroke (according to the doctors). She couldn't talk properly and lost feeling in her hands and legs. What causes this and is it dangerous ?
Please help!

KS, it might be due to high blood pressure caused by the pregnancy, but there is no law that says the pregnancy has t play a role – i.e. it might be due to a blood clotting disorder or a blood vessel problem. The best would be to wait and hear what the specialists say. Good luck.
